Description official descriptions

The Atari Anniversary Edition features 12 classic Atari games, whereby two versions of this game exits. One for Dreamcast/Windows and the other one for PlayStation.

The Dreamcast/Windows version features the following games:

The PlayStation version features these games:

Note: the bold games are those that are just in the one version, but not in the other one.

In addition to the pure emulation modes, there is an option to display the cabinet art surrounding the display of each game, intended to give the player a sense of actually playing a stand-up machine.

Each game also has a toggle for an "enhanced" graphical mode, which varies from game to game. For instance, "enhanced" asteroids merely has a static backdrop, whereas "enhanced" warlords is a complete graphical overhaul with new colors. It should be noted that the "enhanced" version of Tempest is none other than Tempest Tubes, a modification for Tempest made in 1982 by Duncan Brown.

Also included is a gallery of game memorabilia, video clips of an interview with Nolan Bushnell, and desktop themes for Windows.

Classic Games by Atari with extra content in an excellent value!

The Good
There are many of the best games by Atari that run perfectly, and the only major feature I like is that I can customize the settings of each game e.g. to make it look like it was enhanced, or to make it look like it was in a real arcade machine. There are dozens of memorabilia on the CD that I liked too, mostly featuring scanned advertisements of Atari's classic games, plus Nolan Bushnell interviews which I liked.

The Bad
There are more classic Atari games that should be on there as well! I miss these classics that were available on a later version.

The Bottom Line
This is a great compilation of games featuring the Atari games from the 70s to the 80s if you want to relive the past of your favourite Atari games!
